The wiki is up top and if you click "click here to display full wiki" then at the bottom there's an edit wiki button. But fear not, as I've updated the wiki as gifts get posted

Back in November, we got a package with 3 bags of chocolate covered macadamia nuts and coffee from Greenwell Farms in Kona. Perfect timing as we'd just come back from an awesome trip to the Big Island and hadn't made time for any shopping. Thanks to the great gift from our Secret Santa we didn't need to!

Thanks Phil!

My gift arrived yesterday, so today on a very sunny morning I had a nice stroll down to the post office to cellect my package.






The package contained some Singapore goodies to brighten up my already bright day. I am a big fan of Yakun Kaya coconut toast :-) and I look forward to trying the prawn crackers. There were also some nifty tools for organizing my luggage. Which will come in handy already Wednesday, as my work had a bit of extra travel for me on the way for my Xmas break.

Thank you to my secret santa, a very lovely gift to receive.

Opened up my third gift, and inside was a new watch! A particularly nice one in that it's my first mechanical watch! Excited to start wearing this-thank you TH! Are you timmy83?

But Swiss Circle is the "BESTEST OF THE BEST SECRET SANTAS!" In addition to a gift certificate, he sent an American Airlines 777-300 New Livery Airplane! It is so cool and I am so excited!

Thanks Swiss Circle! I will post a pic when I can! You rock!
You are very welcome!

Glad that you like the plane model. Thought it was one of the things one might not really consider buying for themselves, despite thinking about it.

And btw: I think the honors go to Wharvey who puts this together every year...

Gifts received and sent

Hi all!

I sent a PM but forgot to post here.

I have received a package from my Santa. I haven't opened it. My Santa is sly I looked up the c/o name on the package and didn't find anything.

I have sent out a couple things through Amazon to my Santee. I will be following it up with a box of something we both enjoy

Arrived home from a two week trip to Europe to find a package waiting for me. Opened it to find an AWESOME Plane Quiet Platinum Active noise reduction headset. I mentioned in my wish list that I was happy to receive gifts for my wife who does not have any travel gadgets but is starting to join me on trips (we are empty nesters now). She is really excited as she knows how much I enjoy my headset. Thank you very much to a fantastic Secret Santa.

Chief Santa has updated his files with all private messages received.

Still too many holes in his spreadsheet for comfort. Please do all you can to help me fill in the missing components... ie. Ship your gifts and tell me what you ship... or message me what you received.

Also, as a courtesy, please post publicly so your Santas can see that you received their gift.

Thank you Secret Santa #2



We got home from running some errands this morning to find a package sitting on the front step of our house addressed to me! I opened the box and found 2 lovely glass containers shipped from a vase store in California. They will be perfect for storing soon-to be baked Christmas cookies and for shells to be gathered on an upcoming trip to the seashell-centric Gulf Coast of Florida. I am sorry that I could not do a better job with my photo. Thank you Secret Santa #2 for brightening up our home with the pretty glass containers!
